Bakery
“A Bellingham classic. Friends meet friends at the Bagelry. They make New York style bagels here (not those squishy ones you'll find in Seattle) in about a dozen flavors with as many kinds of schmears. The soups are also good. Coffee is hit and miss since the new owners took over. Best go 3 doors down to Cafe Adagio for that. ”
